Monash Centre for Additive Manufacturing

Overview of Services

The purpose of the Monash Centre for Additive Manufacturing (MCAM) is to take fundamental research from a broad range of disciplines and apply them to manufacturing challenges. These disciplines include material science, alloy design and processing, surface engineering, corrosion and hybrid materials.

The Monash Centre for Additive Manufacturing takes the most recent discoveries in alloy and metallurgical science and explore ways to apply them in real world applications – working with partners who need stronger, lighter, more cost effective components. Our global aerospace industry partnerships are profiting from their relationship with us, as we:

  • Provide bespoke solutions
  • Manufacture new designs and complex geometries
  • Produce new materials with improved balanced properties to achieve higher fuel efficiency and performance
  • Increase their global competitiveness
  • Design new processes to reduce manufacturing waste
  • Create supply chain value

MCAM's capabilites are delivered through various manufacturing technologies and software, predominantly in additive manufacturing (3D printing) of metallic alloys. The utilised tchnologies are as follows:

  • Selective laser melting (SLM, 3D Printing) - High resolution powder bed laser melted metallic powders
  • Direct Laser Deposition (DLD, DLF) - CNC controlled blown powder direct deposition of metals
  • Hot Isostatic Press (HIP) - High temperature & pressure heat treatment
  • Controlled atmosphere & air furnace heat treatments
  • Metal surface finishing - Sand blasting, Vibro-polishing (Tumbler) & Electro-polishing
  • Modelling, build silumation & design for manufacture - Simufact, 3DXpert, Solidworks, Abaqus, Netfabb.
